Dharmatalk: Inquiry into Experience

March 1, 2021

“… Zen is an effortless practice. It’s just letting go …”

Description: In these two short talks given at the Esalen Institute in January 2020, we hear about Zen’s emphasis on awakening, which is closely linked to the original meaning of the word “Buddhism.” Zen is a unique spiritual path in that it is more interested in the heart-to-heart transmission of the awakening experience than it is in rhetorical dogma. Koans have a central place in this tradition, as they present a yardstick by which to gauge one’s depth of awakening.
